It’s that time of the year that calls for cosy knits, woolly socks … and great skincare! As the temperatures change, so should the products you’re using daily; ensuring your complexion is protected and ready for the harsher weather to come. Here are the products Heaven Founder and Royal Facialist Deborah Mitchell reaches for at this time of the year.


This multi-functional essential not only detoxes your skin but also helps heal imperfections and target those tell-tale signs of ageing. It’s the first of my products to contain the healing bark from the willow tree, a natural and organic alternative to aspirin. Because of this it’s ideal for those who suffer from acne and spot breakouts, rosacea and eczema.

How to use: Massage into your skin and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Alternatively you can apply before bedtime, leave overnight for an intensive moisturising treatment, and wash off the next morning. Shop here.


Autumn means more time spent indoors and that inevitably means more time on our devices. My Age Defiance Cream uses Prism Light Defiance TechnologyTM to harness the power of our skin’s own natural peptides to not only defend against light damage but actually protect against further damage. It works in tandem with light to inform your skin to replenish specific areas with more elastin and collagen; plumping out lines, easing scar formation, lightening pigmentation and preventing spot breakouts.

How to use: Particularly good for soothing irritated, acne prone, rosacea, blemished or sensitive and oily skins; use this luxurious moisturiser morning and night. Shop here.


The big hitter of your autumn skincare arsenal, this world famous mask adds a touch of luxury to your daily routine. You’ll notice your complexion quickly feels soft and supple, and looks more youthful. It soothes and heals too, meaning it is ideal for even sensitive skin.

How to use: You can use in a variety of different ways: leave on for ten minutes and wash off with warm water; layer on top of your daily moisturiser or combine with a serum; or leave on overnight for accelerated results. Shop here.


Look after the skin on your hands just as you do the skin on your face, especially if you find they are drier at this time of the year. This super-nourishing cream instantly nourishes and hydrates hands and nails. It smells wonderful too – in fact, I apply some before I carry out treatments in my salon and my clients always ask what perfume I’m wearing.

How to use: Apply throughout the day as needed to protect skin during daily activities and chores. It can also be used during a manicure before pushing back the cuticles. Shop here.
